Long ban/kicks not working
« on: June 23, 2006, 09:48:38 AM »
I wrote a few of my own kicks and they are relatively long with timers.
In 7 they don't finish.. Sometimes getting stopped mid line.. Mid word even.

Is there any way to make them work again, I figure there is some sort of limit to the amount of letters and digits.

Sure would appreciate the help.

Thanks

Paste the lines here please.
And are these aliases, or added to the popup menus?

The additions are in Popups.ini, formally pop_nicklist.ini
and here is one that doesn't complete
n27=.Bad Nick Countdown: /say you have till the count of 10 to change your name $nick | /timer 1 1 2 /say 1 | /timer 2 1 4 /say 2 | /timer 3 1 6 /say 3 | /timer 4 1 8 /say 4, I'm serious here $nick | /timer 5 1 10 /say 5 | /timer 6 1 12 /say 6, you better change it $nick!! | /timer 7 1 14 /say 7 | /timer 8 1 16 /say 8 | /timer 9 1 18 /say 9 | /timer 10 1 20 /say 10, well, you can't say I didn't warn you $nick. Oh Well. | /timer 11 1 22 /kick # $nick Poor choice of nickname

BTW, those numbers on the side (n27) make the file hard to edit and add too.

The script stops here:
6, you better ch

stops mid word on that one.

Thanks

Yes, that definately will not work.
There is a 255 character limit with items like that. And that looks like it is WAY over that limit.

The script worked fine in 5.5.

Why did you add the limit in 7?

That doesnt mean there is no way possible to make it work.
You can make some aliases, to split the line up, and just call the aliases, to shorten it.

Just have to get creative.

Well, here is a question..
Is there a way to pass the nick variable over to the alias menu?

I don't want to type the name every time I invoke the script.. typos happen, and I need the script to work if it is going to be effective.
